Winter can cause some hidden (and some not-so-hidden) damage to your vehicle. It’s important to make sure that frosty winter wonderland didn’t leave a permanent mark.

Ice

One of the biggest issues ice can have on your vehicle is compromising your windshield wipers. They take a beating over the winter. How many days have you been late and haven’t completely waited until your car was defrosted to head to work and watch your wipers chip away at the leftovers? If need be, we can replace the blades for you at our Hyundai service center. Plus, we’ll want to top off your windshield wiper fluid which was probably used quite a bit as well.

Potholes

Potholes can be carefully camouflaged with rain or snow and unfortunately, can sometimes just be impossible to miss. Even without it being obvious, potholes can damage your Hyundai tires, or cause them to wear unevenly, which makes it extra important to visit us and have them rotated now. Plus, you’ll want to be sure the tread is still decent after gripping those slick streets all winter.

Road Salt.

We probably wouldn’t be having this discussion without road salt because all of our cars would be beyond repair from the icy roads. However, as good as it is for our safety, it can wreak havoc on our vehicles. Road salt can start to corrode your car’s exterior. It can also lead to rust, which causes permanent damage. The best way to avoid it? Wash it off as soon as you can.

Spring is upon us, which means it’s time to say hello to sunshine. But, before you get too excited, make sure your Hyundai vehicle is ready too. Visit our Hyundai dealership near New York, NY to let us help.
